As Computex draws near, AMD isn’t the only one with something new to unveil. Seems like NVIDIA will also be joining the party with one (or multiple) product launch next week. In a new teaser that only says “Something Super is Coming”, with “SUPER” etched on a metallic surface (heatsink?), NVIDIA has started a new round of speculations from both enthusiasts as well as journalists.
Turing Refresh or Next-Gen Titan?
As is the tradition, team green usually launches the Titan GPU ahead of the mainstream consumer parts. It happened with the Titan V (based on Volta) that lacked the Turing features, however, and was also was the case with the Maxwell-based Titan X, both of which launched a few months before the rest of the parts.
But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. There’s barely been a peep about the next-gen Ampere architecture and the more likely case is that it’s a new product or product-stack based on the existing Turing architecture, perhaps a refresh with faster memory and/or clocks. It’s also possible that it’s neither of these and perhaps something else
